The origins of oolong tea dates back almost 400 years. The health benefits of Oolong Tea are doubled due to the combined qualities of black tea and green tea. It is a refreshing, tasty beverage with light toasted tasting notes. Best consumed in the morning with breakfast or with your evening snack. It is a very effective tea for controlling the metabolism of fat in the body. A perfect tea for all the weight watchers.
A traditional oolong is prepared from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Camellia Sinesis plants are the same plants used in the preparation of green and black teas. However, the difference lies in the processing methods. Oolong Tea, unlike Black & Green Teas, go through medium oxidation and only represent 2% of the world's tea. This tea is of the rarest form, well worth discovering.
